Good for a Chuckle

We were grocery shopping the other day and I put a big chunk of ham in my cart.
Thinking it was bologna Zachary asked, "Does bologna grow in the garden."
After Megan and I laughed hysterically I got my composure, apologized to Zachary for laughing at him and then said, "Actually no bologna doesn't grow in the garden. And anyway, this is ham." To this Zach very seriously (a little puzzled at why we would laugh so hard at him making the simple mistake of calling ham bologna) replied, "Oh, well then does ham grow in the garden?" Can you tell that we don't raise pigs? Just the thought of growing pigs in the garden makes me kind of chuckle, you know? Guess it would be good fertilizer!
Brooke was helping me in the kitchen the other day when she looked at me and declared, "When I grow up I'm going to be a mommy, and you will be a mommy and then we can be mommies together!" To which I replied, "I would like that a lot :)" Awww...little girl you know how to melt a mommy's heart!
The younger ones were chorusing (translation: singing together at the top of their lungs) the song, "O be careful little eyes what you see, O be careful little eyes what you see, for the Father up above is looking down in love, O be careful little eyes what you see. O be careful little feet".....there was a slight pause as they tried to think of the words......Then it came to Nathan...."O be careful little feet what you step on...." I can tell already he is going to be a songwriter :)
What funny/cute/hilarious or all of the above things have your blessings said lately?

Those are funny stories.:) My little ones like to sing that song too, but the girls always sing "For the Father of your nose" or "of your toes". I'm not sure where they got that from, but it makes me laugh!
